'Game Of Thrones' Creators Explain That Daenerys 'Mad Queen' Twist

'Game Of Thrones' Creators Explain That Daenerys 'Mad Queen' Twist The creators of 'Game of Thrones' have offered an explanation to Daenerys Targaryen's downfall into the 'Mad Queen' in episode five. WARNING: This article contains spoilers for episode five of 'Game of Thrones' season eight Anyone who's been paying attention to the barrage of not-so-subtle hints Game of Thrones has been throwing at us (via prophecies, foreshadowing and on-the-nose subtext), will have seen Daenerys Targaryen's descent into Mad Queen territory coming. But still.

WARNING: This story contains spoilers for the Game of Thrones Season 8 finale.

Last night's series finale of Game of Thrones marked the last time we'd see our favorite characters on screen, and some goodbyes were harder (or less satisfying) than others. Perhaps the toughest pill to swallow was Daenerys Targaryen's fall, which Khaleesi fans disparaged on Twitter. After her quick turn to tyranny, her nephew-turned-lover-turned-threat Jon Snow stabs her in the throne room, killing her in an attempt to save the world from her fiery reign.

Drogon finds her body in the Red Keep and heartbreakingly nudges his mom to wake up, but when he realizes she's gone, he burns the Iron Throne with dragonfire, scoops her up, and flies away. That marks the mother-son duo's final scene in the episode, and in effect, the entire series. So where exactly did they go?

During King Bran's first meeting with his small council, Samwell Tarly reveals that Drogon "was last spotted flying east, toward-" but Bronn cuts him off. "The farther away the better," he interjects. Bran replies, "Perhaps I can find him," hinting that he'll use his abilities as the Three-Eyed Raven to locate the last dragon. And that's the last mention of the Targaryens and their beloved reptilian beasts.

Game of Thrones: Burning questions before the series finale

Game of Thrones: Burning questions before the series finale LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) - The penultimate episode of Game of Thrones was a fiery affair. King's Landing lies in ruins with much of its population decimated, and multiple major characters are among the dead. 'The Bells' had a definite feeling of finality about it. However, the are still plenty of burning (too soon?) questions going into the series finale, with the Iron Throne still very much up for grabs. Is there anybody left to rule? © HBO The moment Dany decides to send King's Landing up in flames. Episode 3: Death shall rain down upon Westeros. Episode 5: Hold my beer.

GoT fans speculate that Drogon was actually headed for Old Valyria, an ancient fallen city in Essos (which is east of Westeros, as Sam suggested) once ruled by dragonlords, and the ancestral homeland of House Targaryens and their dragons. Daenerys even reveals in Season 3 that Valyrian is her "mother tongue" when she speaks to the Unsullied, proving that she still holds that part of her family history dear.

The city was destroyed in the Doom of Valyria (essentially their Pompeii) but the Targaryens fled before the disaster, landing in Dragonstone and eventually taking over Westeros from there.

So where did he take her? Thrones viewers get a rare glimpse of Valyria on the show during Season 5, when Ser Jorah Mormont and Tyrion Lannister sail through its remnants to reach Meereen. While cruising through the Smoking See, they even recite a poem about the Doom together:

Game of Thrones: 8 shocking moments from the finale SPOILER ALERT: Do not keep reading if you have not seen the finale of Game of Thrones. © HBO Jaime and Cersei were killed when the Red Keep fell. After the Game of Thrones finale, many of us will likely emulate Jon Snow and just retire North of the Wall. It was billed as one of the biggest events in TV history, and showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss certainly kept plenty of surprises for the series finale. Read on for some of the most shocking moments from the final episode of Game of Thrones.


They held each other close and turned their backs upon the end.

The hills that split asunder and the black that ate the skies;

The flames that shot so high and hot that even dragons burned;

Would never be the final sights that fell upon their eyes.

A fly upon a wall, the waves the sea wind whipped and churned -

The city of a thousand years, and all that men had learned;

The Doom consumed it all alike, and neither of them turned


This is also where Tyrion sees a dragon for the first time, as Drogon flies overhead during their journey.

There's also the possibility that Drogon brought Dany's corpse to Dragonstone, House Targaryen's stronghold in Westeros, which is an island east of King's Landing. There's also speculation he could have brought her to the Dothraki Sea, which is also in Essos. But considering the rich historic ties between both Dany and Drogon and the land of Valyria, the mysterious city of ruins seems to be a fitting resting place for her.

RIP to the Mother of Dragons.
